This paper presents an accurate and efficient hybrid solution method, based on Newmark-β algorithm, for solving nonlinear oscillators containing fractional derivatives (FDs) of arbitrary order. Basically, this method employs a quadrature method and the Newmark-β algorithm to handle FDs and integer derivatives, respectively. To reduce the computational burden, the proposed approach provides a strategy to avoid nonlinear algebraic equations arising routinely in the Newmark-β algorithm. Numerical results show that the presented method has second-order accuracy. Importantly, it can be applied to both linear and nonlinear oscillators with FDs of arbitrary order, without losing any precision and efficiency.
